Etsy Tips & Tricks #2: Shades of Color

I've been showing up in a lot of treasuries lately, and I've decided that the reason why is that I've recently discovery something cool on Wikipedia that I call Shades of Color. The entry includes different shades and color names in each color.  So, now, instead of just putting "blue" I try to find a more accurate color name, like "cerulean," "teal," powder blue," or whatever. Having accurate colors in my tags means that potential buyers can find myself item when they are searching for a certain color. I try to use at least two different color names in my listings if I can.

Here are some of the Wikipedia entries:

Shades of Blue

Shades of Green

Shades of Yellow

Shades of Red

Shades of Violet

Shades of Orange


  1. It would rock if wikipedia also posted the hex codes for those colors so people could use them on websites. I would find that useful, but don't really have the time to sort through all those colors... Just sayin!

  2. Something like this?

    I used to have a link to a better one, but I'll have to see if I can track it down!

    And how the heck are you, Karissa? Where are you these days?
